Stargazing

Snapshot_043I’ve taken to having just as much fun finding the location for an outfit photo to be taken as I do putting the outfit itself together. Strawberry Singh turned me on to The Trace via her blog post yesterday, Bloom. A few clicks later and I’m on Windlight Photography’s Blog — if you’re looking to do some exploring I highly, highly recommend following this blog along with many other travel blogs. I get so jaded sitting alone on my homestead I completely forget about the incredible sims and teraform art there is on the grid. Go! Shoo! Get to exploring!

In a setting like this, I’ll take a bath out in the open, no prob!

 

However, if you’ve chosen to stick around, I don’t blame you – I’ve still got some pretty neat stuff in store. Moving on to today’s outfit.  I was kind of going for an explorer kind of feel… but I was too hooked on this dress from 2Chez that it really just ended up being a kickass outfit to wear when you do whatever you want, because you look that good. So let’s see this outfit up close…

..:: Night in Paris ::..

Snapshot_033Today I wanted to fall back to the basics just a teensy bit – as a reminder there are still some amazing designers making some AMAZING non-mesh clothing. In honor of the good ‘ole days… the only mesh in today’s outfit is my hair by Elikatira. I additionally need to say my new official favorite Parisian sim is Paris Eiffel — I’ve seen a lot of attempts to make a build feel just like you’re in Paris but none have succeeded so well as this one! This made me wish I had a beret and a bicycle… perhaps I’ll do that real soon!

I need to rave about Belleza’s Best Buy June Skin – Ava. This is up for only 400L and it’s just adorable! The face is clean and fresh; just my cup of tea when it comes to being able to throw on some make-up to match an outfit. Picture above IS altered, but it is just as beautiful in world. Probably sticking in this one for just a little bit XD
